perClass BV, based in Delft, The Netherlands, a provider of user-guided machine learning solutions, today announced to have successfully tested together with imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, a new integrated solution to accurately analyze images from imec’s ultrasonic SNAPSCAN hyperspectral imaging camera’s by making use of perClass Mira software.

The novel combination offers advantages like user guided machine learning, easy to use graphical interface, fast processing of data, and precise interpretation of the ultrasonic SNAPSCAN camera’s output.

The perClass Mira technology, with key functionalities implemented, like user guided interpretation, without programming or machine learning expertise, enables domain experts to validate their solution on new images allowing results to be provided within minutes.

“Compared to existing situations of bringing the sample to the lab, we now bring the lab to the sample and enable domain experts, such as a biologist or process engineer, or a medical researcher to built / update their own automated interpretation solutions” explains Pavel Paclik, Managing Director from perClass BV

“The seamless integration of perClass Mira’s software and imec’s hyperspectral imaging hardware will enable our partners more than ever to quickly demonstrate and validate high quality classification of material types without the need of deep knowledge of the complex science of chemometrics,” concurred Jerome Baron, Business Development Manager for Integrated imaging & vision solutions of imec

Solutions developed with perClass Mira interface can be directly deployed to external applications, such as imec’s SNAPSCAN hyperspectral imaging acquisition and visualization software or customers own software to automatically process new images.

“With more than 10 years of development and commercialization under our belt, at perClass we have validated the perClass Mira technology and have been engaged in commercial opportunities.” perClass’ goal is to leverage this breakthrough technology for rapid deployment in the imaging market.
